Shyam Sudan India is the second most populous country of the world. Every year world population day is celebrated on 11th of July internationally to aware the people about the problem of increasing population and its consequences at world platform. Asia continent is the most densely populated area of the world. Because the world’s most populous countries i.e China and India are located in this continent with their mammoth structure of population. Increasing population in this continent is continuously posing serious threat for our congenial existence on this globe. Because we have limited natural resources and geographical area for our survival but the population in this region is continuously increasing with a geometric ratio. Such thing creates an imbalance between the nature and our existence on this planet. Because due to increase in population there is struggle for existence and fight for utilization of various natural cum manmade resources. As a result we have seen a continuous rivalry and internal disputes between different nations of the world for their existence. In our neighbour China is continuously putting hurdles for his neighbouring countries due to her expansionist policies. There are lot of positive and negative outcomes of this rapidly growing population density in different nations of the world. Lot of reasons are responsible for this sudden spurt in population size in last few decades. Because now with the advancement in medical science and other technological innovations the mortality rate is very low as compared to past. Moreover there is no legal check and control over the birth rates of newly born infants in these countries. Lack of education is another factor responsible for increase in population growth in Asian countries. People till date are not properly aware about the hazards of increasing population and its consequences. They even think that it is the blessing of God. At some point religious ignorance is responsible at some extent for increase in population within some specific religion. Because a fake religious minority phobia has been created by some orthodox section of society. However in China there is provision of legal restrictions over this problem. Because they felt that increasing population always put a hurdle in their development and advancement. In western countries growth and density of population is low as compared to Asian and African countries of the world. Due to their low density population in western countries we have seen a standard of life and human values in those nations. But here in Asia we have confronted with many problems that are interlinked with population growth. Rapid population growth poses other interlinked problems like poverty, unemployment, increase in crime rate and struggle for existence and fight for utilization of resources. In our country we are facing lot of problems with this growing size of our population. Every year government has launched various kinds of mega nourishment and employment generation schemes for the welfare of general public. But to mammoth size of our population these schemes couldn’t work properly and remain futile. As a result we have seen that the percentage of below poverty line people is continuously increasing every year. Due to limited resources it become very difficult to feed all with nutritious and healthy diet. We have greater percentage of young population in the world. No doubt we are at advantage of many millions energetic working hands but side wise we have the pressure of feeding many million mouths. Our urban population growth is very high as compared to rural areas. People generally migrated in these big cities in want of some work and other life related comforts. This thing creates more problems in our cities and urban areas. Every year government and other NGOs launch various awareness campaigns in this direction to educate the people about this manmade devastation. Many literate and educated people now realized the ill consequences of this population explosion. They are now focussing on short family structure. But still large segment of our population is totally unaware about the hazards of this population explosion. There is an urgent need to bring some sort of legal restrictions over this problem. Structure of two members family must be needed to control this rapid explosion of population. If our rate of population growth is going with same pace then in coming years we will face the most vulnerable situation due to this population growth.
